With all the replies to this thread I'm surprised nobody
mentioned that when Fred Stewart was a child he once told
a lie to his father. His father became angry and warned,
"Son, if you want to be successful in life you have to be
frank with people." And so it came to be.
Apologies if Kenny meant the real Fred Stewart (current
partner of Kit Woolsey) but "column" points to Frank.
West's play of the CJ from J-9 has been labeled a falsecard
(or psychic play) but that's not necessarily true. If partner
held K-10 doubleton, it's an essential unblock. Note declarer
must assume the DA with West to succeed, so the CK should be
with East; hence (with Qxxx opp. Axxxx) it is reasonable to
run the queen. Besides K-9, this succeeds against K-10 unless
West is alert.
Re layout considerations, I think it's too late. Once Google
took over Usenet, nothing matters. We used to be warned not to
use tabs, but now even spaces get blown away (or replaced with
garbage). Next thing you know, Google will start whiting us out
in the middle of
Another consideration is covering with C K9x could be a costly mistake
if partner has the stiff ace.
So RHO might have something to think about a little more if he started
with C K9x.
